A movie about immigrants, a teenage brother and sister who escape genocide in Guatemala by fleeing to the United States (“El Norte”). As Roger Ebert wrote, “Their journey begins in a small village and ends in Los Angeles, and their dream is the American Dream.” Nominated for an Academy Award, the film humanizes the immigration story by telling it through the eyes of the siblings. Ebert wrote “El Norte is a great film, one of the year’s best.” Come see why, at 6 p.m. on February 7 in The Landing. In Spanish, with English subtitles.
